This month at Case Study Challenge the featured stamper is Silke Ledlow!  I have greatly admired her work since I first saw her cards 2  years ago!! She has clean and simple lines and her cards are beautiful!!  I remember messaging her when I first joined Splitcoast Stampers about her silver one uses them so wonderfully!!The featured card this week is this one:

I really didn't want to change anything...I wanted to totally case the card, but changed a few things and made this:
I changed the color, the border, the sentiment, and the embellishments, but I LOVED the images and I kept that all the same!  I LOVE how she doesn't have to frame each panel, pops it up, and it looks beautiful...sooooo cool!!
I used Papertrey butterfly dies, and then the stamps, colored with old SU markers and layered.  I used the SU border punch, and the black dots are Enamel Accents(I use them ALOT!).
I am looking forward to the rest of the month...but I doubt I'll veer too far from her's my chance to have Silke's cards for my own:)!!
Thanks for looking, I hope you have a great weekend!!!
Things I used:
Stamps: Butterfly Dreams, Turning a New Leaf, Fiskars All Year Greetings
Paper: Papertrey White, textured Taken with Teal, SU design paper(Apricot Appeal)
